Sachin Tendulkar has returned home after the India cricket great spent close to a week in hospital following his coronavirus positive test.
The 47-year-old former captain revealed on March 27 he had been experiencing "mild symptoms", prompting him to undergo a check for COVID-19.
On April 2, he announced he had been admitted to hospital "as a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice".
Tendulkar, the highest-scoring batsman in Test cricket history with 15,921 runs, declared on Twitter on Thursday that he had left his hospital bed.
He wrote: "I have just come home from the hospital and will remain isolated while continuing to rest and recuperate.
"I would like to thank everyone for all the good wishes and prayers. Really appreciate it. I remain ever grateful to all the medical staff who took such good care of me and have been working tirelessly for over a year in such difficult circumstances."
